“To all our esteemed patrons,

Our attention has been drawn to a misleading write-up doing rounds across the internet.

In that write-up, Kenyans are urged to boycott various businesses belonging to politicians who have assented to the Finance Bill, 2024.

Unfortunately, among the many business outlined is Baniyas Square (Eldoret). It appears that someone, either maliciously or ignorantly, sneaked our establishment into the list of businesses Kenyans should boycott.

We wish to categorically state that Baniyas Square (Eldoret) is NOT affiliated with a politician or any political outfit.

We wish to notify all Baniyas Square patrons and the general clientele that our name appears in the list wrongfully.

KINDLY IGNORE the message and treat it with the contempt it deserves.

Additionally, the Baniyas Square management wishes to state that the people’s voice is the voice of God. Kenyans have made their stand on the Finance Bill 2024.

We wish to emphatically state that we stand on the right side of history.

By Management
Baniyas Square Ltd.”
The statement read.

Following the invasion, the establishment suffered major losses as demonstrators destroyed the club’s expensive sound system, other electronics and millions worth of alcoholic and soft drinks.

Sources intimate to Baniyas Square management hissed that the attack on the night spot seems malicious since the club was targeted even after showing, rather confirming their support for the Reject Finance Bill 2024 campaign.

An earlier video captured at the establishment had confirmed that the management was among Kenyan businesses opposing the Finance Bill 2024.

In the video which has fast gone viral, a deejay at the club was spotted pausing the music to allow revellers to chant anti-Finance Bill slogans, a clear indication of the club’s position in the whole debacle.
